LAHORE: In a high-profile alleged rigging case on NA-122 seat of Lahore, an election tribunal reserved its verdict on Monday.
Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan had challenged the election of National Assembly Speaker sardar Ayaz Sadi who got elected from the NA-122 constituency during the general elections 2013, accusing him committing planned rigging and stolen the mandate of the general public.
During the previous hearing, the election tribunal had asked Sadiq’s counsel to fulfil his arguments on the issue of alleged rigging in NA-122.
As the hearing started today, the respective lawyers have summed up their arguments after which the tribunal reserved its ruling.
The verdict will now be accounted on Saturday, August 22.
Previously, a considerable outcry had been observed regarding alleged rigging in NA-122 in the general elections 2013. PTI chairman Imran Khan had demanded earlier this year the formation of judicial commission to probe the irregularities in general elections 2013. However, the main stress of Imran’s demanding to investigate was the constituency of current National Speaker Ayaz Sadiq’s NA-122.
